More warplanes fly through China's zone

  • China has been left to embarrassment after Japan, South Korea and the US flew through it's newly declared air defense zone without any issues. 

    The nation is now ready to respond and has sent its own warplanes and an early warning aircraft into the zone over the East China Sea. A rep for its air force said the flights are "a defensive measure and in line with international common practices."

    According to Reuters, the air force is now prepared to "firmly protect the security of the country's airspace."
